On Eminem's surprise release Kamikaze, the 45-year-old rapper went for everyone on his much-talked about track "Fall." The controversial song sees him naming a lot of names, and among those is Lord Jamar. "And as far as Lord Jamar, you better leave me the hell alone," Em rapped on the song, among plenty of direct and subliminal shots. On the latest episode of the Yanadameen Godcast with Lord Jamar & Rah Digga, Jamar has finally responded.
"The gloves are off now," he starts at the 10:50 mark of the podcast. "I wanted this to happen. Because... See, I'm a chess player, okay? If he didn't respond, I win. And if he responds, I win. Either way, I win, okay? Because you are now doing what the fuck I wanted you to do. I have made you modify your behavior. I got into your psyche. You sat there and had to fucking sit down and try to think of some shit to respond to Lord Jamar's jabs that you know you could not escape. It was just inescapable."
Overall he seems a little bit disappointed in the diss, remarking, "Usually he goes after soft targets. ... I think it was kind of wack for an Eminem verse." He then goes on to bring up a video of someone doing an impression of Eminem, critiquing his overdependence on rhyming. "I was expecting something a little more wordier," Jamar says of "Fall."
